in thread magic-diamond <> behavior -- WHAT?!

p5p-the-list can endlessly debate issues like this, but don't mistake that for decision, justification, or anything like that. When it comes down to it, someone may produce a patch, and the blead pumpking may apply it. No one else matters except Larry.

I have taken advantage of the misfeature, and probably will again, but would be happy to have it not be the default...except for one issue which was raised in the p5p noise: I think - should continue to indicate stdin. And once you have that one exception, you've already lost the battle for a "safe" *.

[Mj1234]: Hello Monks, I have installed Active perl 5.16 and 5.14 but I dont find Devel::GDB package when I try to install through ppm
[Discipulus]: i'v installed ubuntu 16.04lts and i'm quite disappointed: is deadly simmilar to new win osses where you cannot find even simple things...
[Corion]: Hi Discipulus ;)
[Corion]: Mj1234: Maybe Ubuntu didn't package Devel::GDB? In that case, consider using local::lib and install the module from CPAN
[Corion]: But a quick Google search turns up this page, which seems to suggest that it should be packaged
[Discipulus]: iirc active perl has repositories only for last 2 o 3 major release of perl Mj1234. I strongly suggest portable version of strawberry perl and use cpan client to install modules
[choroba]: Also, who needs GDB when there's hdb?
